Loved this hotel! The art is amazing. Orri gave me a tour of the arg on the main floor. When I blew a fuse with my converter Orri fixed it immediately. Room was a suite, very spacious. Excellent location, walk everywhere. Ask for a free ticket to the local art gallery. They have some of the hotel's art in the gallery

We had read many reviews of this hotel prior to staying there. It was suggested that we stay in a suite. We did and we were very happy with the suggestions offered. Our room was bright and sunny and very comfortable. The bathroom was small but, worked well for us. The morning breakfast was lovely. There were two kinds of eggs, hard and soft boiled. There was fruit, fish, yogurt, meats and many other tasty items.

My wife and I stayed in at the end of May. i don't think the hotel has air conditioning and the rooms facing the street can get quite hot in the daytime. One thing that surprised me was that the curtains are thin and don't block out much light. This is a real annoyance when it stays light out until late in the evening. We asked for a different room and they gave us one immediately. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel is three blocks from a street with a lot of restauran... Read more

We were booked in here for a business trip so I cannot comment on value for money. However, the staff were very friendly and the hotel really felt different and not like the normal chain. I am told that it used to be the only place in Reykjavik with a Michelin star and certainly the restaurant was fantastic. Rooms were quite small but well appointed and there was adequate curtain coverage to cope with 24/7 daylight. It was well situated and had a comfortable bar and lounge. The breakfast buffet ...

Nice room, incredibly helpful and friendly staff and a location that puts you two minutes from the city centre - what's not to love! Add in the quirky art on every floor and the sense of history from one of Reykjavik's oldest hotels from the wood panelled walls and various period pieces scattered throughout, and you're in for a treat. Breakfast was lovely too. If I come back to Iceland, I know where I'm staying!

This is a beautiful hotel very close to the main streets and shops in Reykavik. It is clean, staff are very helpful and the breakfasts are superb. The only reason it's not been given 5 stars is that the rooms are small and with luggage and camera gear it was a squeeze.This hotel has character and charm and a lovely french influence in its interior design.It has a cozy feel - great place to stay in the winter with its own small off road car park at one end of the hotel.

We were sent to this hotel by Iceland Air after they were very late from London and we missed our connection. They paid for the room, so I don't know about the cost. Our room was lovely, with a nice view. But the really great thing was the restaurant. The food, though quite expensive, was absolutely wonderful! And all of the staff were very pleasant and helpful.

This is an older hotel in the city center with a very efficient staff. They get the job done but not usually with a smile. The rooms are VERY small. The facilities are elegant but a bit dated. Breakfast was very good although all six days there, it was exactly the same. There is a small parking lot for residents which is very helpful as parking in this area is a problem. The cleaning staff was superb. They made our room look like new each and every day.

Very clean and comfortable, with amazing beds and blackout curtains (which were key during 23 hour days!)

I LOVED the location, too.

We spent 6 nights at the holt. The hotel is perfectly located so you can easily walk to the town, harbor and the bus station. The rooms were comfortable and had a great electric hot pot.

This hotel is a Gem of a find if you are looking for something traditional, comfortable and clean. Located very close to the centre but on a quiet residential street you really do feel a part of the small population.

I had contacted the hotel prior to arrival and they were extremely helpful and even when our Northern light excursion was ... Read more

We stayed here a week and had a great time. Knowing what we know we would have requested a room towards the back of the Hotel. Being summer and light out 24/7 there was pedestrian and shuttle noise but that's what earplugs are for! The staff were warm, friendly and very accommodating. The location was perfect, away from the busier part of town but close enough to get anywhere in town fairly quick. Thanks for a great time to all of the staff at this wonderful Hotel.

We stayed for three nights at the Hotel Holt and found it quite charming, right down to the old-fashioned elevator. The staff was very pleasant and always ready to help. Two tips: (1) The hotel is on a street that isn't terribly busy (see the accompanying photo), but I would still recommend a rear-facing room. Due to the acoustics, any vehicle, any shout, etc tends to be loud. (2) They have a driving service that will take you to and from the airport in what I believe are Cadillac Escalades. T... Read more

A very quiet and peaceful place to stay. The rooms are nicely furnished and everything is very clean. The staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast buffet had a good choice of food including some Icelandic specialities such as skyr (nice on the muesli) and pickled herring (didn't try it). The fruit salad was particularly lovely and fresh. The location is great for exploring the city on foot.

Hotel Holt is in a good central location of Reykjavik, without being too busy. It stays quieter at night because it's in a residential area, but it's within walking distance of every spot frequently visited in Reykjavik.

The Hotel Holt is a really special hotel because of their art collection. Art is everywhere, on the walls as paintings and in the hallways as sculptures. The hotel has an old-world feel with rich furnishings and wall coverings and gold metallic fixtures.

The hotel is well located and a 5-10 minute walk will get you to all the major sites in the Reykjavik (Harpa, Hallgr├şmskirkja, the main shopping district etc.). The hotel is on a quiet street and has parking. Rooms are clean, but not fancy. I highly recommend getting a junior suite as they have balconies - and ask for one that faces the City. The bar is nice, but very traditional. Staff were pleasant and accommodating.

Excellent location near many sights. As others have said, the rooms are a bit worn, but they are not shabby and perfectly comfortable and a decent size. A fan may be needed in the summer. Breakfast buffet was ample, tasty and in nice setting, with good options and well prepared, albeit not of luxury quality -- for example made to order omelets were not available. Staff very helpful.

The Hotel is a very special hotel. Rooms are attractive in their simplicity. But the unique feature is the comprehensive collection of Icelandic art. Interesting artwork all over, public rooms, restaurant, corridor, guest rooms. Wandering around the hotel is an esthetic pleasure. Other reasons to recommend the hotel: wonderful staff, helpful, charming and the perfect location - quiet street yet no more than a 15 minute walk from any attraction. Ilana Jerusalem
